All script applications such as forums or e-shops save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with massive databases. Many famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting. That can be performed via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel in which you can create or delete a database, create a backup copy with a single mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin instrument so as to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You may even enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, in order to ensure the safety of your info. If you opt to employ any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you won't have to do anything simply because our system will set up a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you encounter any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and educational videos or get hold of our tech support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages as we have the most current version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to easily create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
